Mark, unveils before our eyes the Lord Jesus as the true Servant of Jehovah, the One whom God calls “My servant . . . in whom My soul delighted” (Isaiah 42:1). As a servant we see our Lord ever busy throughout this Gospel, ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of mankind. One might say that Acts 10:38 is a true epitome of Mark’s presentation of our Lord: “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: So went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him.”

May the Lord be pleased to bless these meditations on the person and works of Christ, for His glory and our blessing.


Many have learned and grown under the teaching of August Van Ryn during his lifetime of service to the Lord. Born in the Netherlands in 1890, he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior when he was 20. IN 1915 he began full-time Christian service, first in gospel tent work in Michigan and then in the Bahamas for 14 years.

His grasp of the Scriptures was unusual. Fearing the permanent loss of his eyesight, he memorized all of the New Testament and large portions of the Old Testament. Later, through diligent care, his eyesight was restored, for more years of service to the Lord.

Mr. Van Ryn traveled extensively throughout his lifetime laboring for the Lord. May these precious portions from his study of the Word enlighten you as well.
